Samantha Morgan, a native Texan and Oklahoma transplant, graduated from Oklahoma State University, in Stillwater, Oklahoma, with a Bachelor of Science in Multimedia Journalism in 2014. After earning her undergraduate degree, Samantha began a life of community service; working first a journalist, then as a member of the Feed The Children marketing team, where she helped tell the stories of vulnerable children in Oklahoma and the world.
She continued her career in marketing and public relations when she returned to OSU as a multimedia producer for the nation’s largest student union. While working at the student union, Samantha entered the classroom again and earned a master’s degree in Mass Communication in 2018. Under the guidance of Joey Senat, Ph.D., one of Oklahoma’s foremost First Amendment experts and advocates, her research focused on striking a balance between press freedoms and a defendant’s right to a fair trial.
During her time at OSU, Samantha was a member of the Phi Kappa Phi honor society and served the Stillwater community as a member of the Stillwater Rotary Club.
After earning her master’s degree, Samantha set her sights on law school. An avid researcher, Samantha wanted to experience working in a law office first-hand and became a paralegal for the Anthony Law Firm, a boutique criminal defense firm serving Payne County, Oklahoma.
Samantha believes earning her law degree and becoming an attorney is the next step in continuing her life of service to the people who call Oklahoma, and the United States, home.
